Rolling over!

Eliot rolled over twice today on to his tummy, all by himself! We are in Tucson at Brady's parents house, and Eliot is sleeping in the same room as us, but in a crib. Usually in the morning he wakes up babbling to himself, and going back and forth between asleep and awake. Around 7 am this morning, he was awake, babbling, I just laid in my bed trying to get some more sleep. Around 7:30, I heard a different sound, a sort of soft grunting, which is not his usual morning sound. So I got out of bed and looked over into his crib, and he was on his tummy, lifting his head up. He had rolled all the way over. He did it again today during his afternoon nap. He had been asleep for 2 hours, so Brady went into to check on him, and he was on his tummy, awake, just kind of hanging out, very quiet.

Eliot really loves Grandma and Grandpa's pool. We go in the pool every day, usually in the late afternoon, around 4 pm, when the pool has warmed up a bit and the sun has gone behind a tree, offering some shade. Today, the fifth consecutive day we've taken him into the pool, he got very excited as we approached the pool.

Here is the whole Bennon clan now.

And here is Eliot snuggling with Grandpa.
